Here's my situation:
I am going for higher studies because of which I have to quit my job. The notice period is 1 month. I have applied for my visa to the country of my study but it might come late in August. Now the caveat is that there is also a chance of the visa getting rejected. So, if I put a leaving notice, I have to put it now (late July). Now, if I put a notice for leaving, and my visa is not approved eventually, I will also lose the job. And if I don't put a notice now, then I will be less than 1 month before I leave.
How should I talk about this situation to my manager? A direct approach would be "I am putting a leave notice, but if my visa is rejected, I will want to continue the job". Will such a direct approach be appropriate?
And what are my options, if any, if the manager turns down my request for such a conditional leaving?
